P.S. OOOH- you know what we need for 2.0.1? there needs to be a default

GDK_USE_XFT should not be referred to as "enable AA fonts" - that
isn't what it does, it enables the Xft backend. Which allows you to
then enable AA fonts, or not. The main point about GDK_USE_XFT is that
it moves us onto our new font architecture, and eventually we are
dropping the old core X architecture.

So does this (thanks Malcolm) accurately reflect things:

In order to have anti-aliased fonts in menus and applications, you will need to make sure that the environment variable GDK_USE_XFT is exported
     	before running the appropriate applications.
	For example, you might put
     	the following in $HOME/.gnomerc:
export GDK_USE_XFT
exec gnome-session

(or possibly "exec ssh-agent gnome-session" if you are using SSH with agent forwarding).
